The Kennispoort ('Knowledge Gate') came to be through a collaboration between the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) and the Eindhoven Chamber of Commerce, which it houses, in the south-west corner of the TU/e campus. The concept behind the seven storey building is that several cuts have been taken out of the volume. On the south-east side for instance, a cut was taken out of the building to emphasize the walking and biking route to the TU/e. Inside, spaces are organised around a two-storey high ground floor. Underneath is a parking garage. The fašade is covered in smooth brickwork, which was glazed, specially developed for this project. The architect spent a lot of attention to the details, which is apparent especially in the fašade and inside in the woodwork. At night, the building is lit up in various colours.
